This week, Zalkind Law’s David Duncan and David Russcol secured an acquittal on all charges for a university student criminally charged with sexual assault and domestic violence. Our client was charged with one count of indecent assault and battery and one count of assault and battery on a family or household member. If convicted, he faced a maximum penalty of two and a half years in the house of correction on each count, registration as a sex offender, and serious immigration consequences. However, after a two-day trial, the jury unanimously found him not guilty on both counts. We also represented the student during a university Title IX investigation into the same incident, after which he was allowed to remain as a student and continue his studies.
